AppFog vs Jelastic: What are the differences?

AppFog: Simple PaaS for Java, Python, Node, .Net, Ruby, PHP, MySQL, Mongo, and PostgreSQL. AppFog provides the infrastructure web developers need to build apps without worrying about IT tasks or having to wait days to get servers ready for writing code. AppFog’s web application technologies include PHP, NodeJS, Ruby, Python, Java, .NET, MySQL, and PostgreSQL; Jelastic: Java and PHP Cloud Hosting. Jelastic is the next generation of Java hosting platforms which can run and scale ANY Java application with no code changes required.

AppFog and Jelastic can be primarily classified as "Platform as a Service" tools.

Some of the features offered by AppFog are:

  • Launches fast, runs fast- Varnish Cache and op-code caching run applications with less server load and accelerated performance.
  • Reduces ops work- No more configuring servers, firewalls, Apache, security, or installing frameworks.
  • Plays well with any SCM- Versioning is critical. AppFog is compatible with code management systems like git, svn, and mercurial.

On the other hand, Jelastic provides the following key features:

  • Set up environment in seconds
  • No installation or configuration
  • No APIs to code to

"The basic plan is free" is the primary reason why developers consider AppFog over the competitors, whereas "Managed hosting" was stated as the key factor in picking Jelastic.
